Ephesians 6: 13-15. “Therefore, put on every piece of God's armor so you will be
able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still
be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor
of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News
so that you will be fully prepared.”
The Gospel of Peace is the Good News that Jesus has put a whipping on the forces
of darkness, on the demons and Hell and on Satan himself. He has made a public spectacle
of them triumphing over them at the cross.
What is the significance of this as we engage in battle? We have a readiness, a sure
footedness and a preparedness that comes from knowing that the battle is already
won. It is the confidence that we have in battle knowing the Gospel or Good News
that our King Jesus has already defeated our enemy.
Why is peace important when we are in battle?
So, as we put on the shoes of peace we can stand on them wherever we are called to
go to enforce the victory Christ has won for us.
Romans 10:15 says, “And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That

in the battle. God will never be moved by doubt, because He is only moved by faith.
Hebrews 11:6 reads, “And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who
wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely
When you know that you've already won – nothing else matters!
You will have His peace that transcends every situation and circumstance knowing
that the End result is “Triumphant Victory!”
2 Corinthians 2:14 states, “But thank God! He has made us His captives and continues
to lead us along in Christ's triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge
of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume.”
So, how do we get the Good News of Peace in the midst of a War with many battles?
“You must put on the Good News of Peace by FAITH!”
